With every season come its fun activities. Now that we’re approaching mid-fall, there’s plenty of things you can do to be festive and embrace this time of year.
Go to a Haunted house
I was walking down 125th street and a man handed me a flier for a haunted house. That’s not really my thing because I get scared easily, but I’ve gone to haunted houses and haunted trails before and they’re a fun way to celebrate Halloween.
Have a get-together with your friends and make hot apple cider
You don’t have to hand pick your apples to make some delicious apple cider but what could be more of a cozy activity than inviting your friends over and making some apple cider for them. When it gets cold, we want to be around the ones we love and spend quality time with them. Here’s the recipe so you can get started right away! http://allrecipes.com/recipe/9501/hot-apple-cider/
Sick of your style? Take a trip to your favorite stores and build your wardrobe for the fall and winter. Not only that, but check out new shades of lipstick, eye shadow, eyeliner. Makeup doesn’t have to cover you up; it can enhance your beauty. This season, the red lipstick look with no eye liner is in, as well as fake eye lashes that enlarge your eyes, and glitter around the eyes. And reinvention isn’t limited to your outer appearance. You can reassess things in your life, such as your job or career, relationships you have, and your habits
Design a journal or scrap book
To me, the fall is a time for reflecting and journaling is one of my favorite pastimes. Simply buy a composition notebook (for journaling) and cover it with a piece of construction paper, front and back, and decorate it with magazine cutouts, or stickers you can find at a store like Michael’s. For scrap booking, gather pictures or things that have sentimental value to you and buy a scrapbook you can also find at Michael’s
Explore the land
Don’t let yourself forget to admire and marvel in the beauty of fall. You can’t always do that when you’re inside. Why not take a hike, if you have a trail near you. The changing of the leaves and crisp air is something you’ll only get to experience once a year. If you’re in NYC like me and don’t have a hiking trail, find a local park. And collect some fallen leaves while you’re at it.
If you have a significant other, do something special with them like going out to dinner, a movie, a play, or just hanging out at home fireside. If you’re single, gather the courage to put yourself out there and maybe initiate a date with someone you’re interested in.
Don’t forget your family
Sometimes we get so burdened with work or relationships that we neglect to value the people who truly matter. Try calling up a family member and just saying hello or maybe initiating a get together.
